An hour of wickedly funny showbiz merriment, and some occasional candy… FRONT ROW CENTER
NEW YORK CITY – After acclaimed runs in the UK and Australia, writer/performer Peter Michael Marino returns to NYC with the comical autopsy on his  $6 million West End Desperately Seeking Susan musical fiasco in DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT. Directed by Obie Award winner John Clancy, this limited engagement will be performed Saturday & Sunday, March 22 & 23 at The Triple Crown Underground.   “Highly entertaining. A salutary lesson to anyone looking to the stage for fame, fortune and happiness.”  — British Theatre Guide   In 2007, American playwright Peter Michael Marino wrote a musical based on the film “Desperately Seeking Susan” featuring the music of Blondie. It opened on London’s West End…and closed a month later.
DESPERATELY SEEKING THE EXIT offers a behind-the-scenes peek at how this $6 million musical was made and unmade: hatching the idea, deals with MGM, Debbie Harry and even Madonna; the workshops, the previews, the scathing reviews, closing night and beyond.   Saturday and Sunday, March 22 & 23 at 8pm. The Triple Crown Underground 330 7th Ave at 28th St. New York, NY 10010   Tickets are “pay-what-you-can,” available on a first-come, first served basis; no advance reservations will be taken. Full bar available.   Free British sweets provided by The London Candy Company.   For more information or an interview with Peter Michael Marino, call (917) 825-3549 or email Hi-resolution photo/logo here:   “Fast-paced fun and engrossing… a simply uplifting and completely engrossing tribute to the human spirit.” — The List, Edinburgh

For my money, the theatre is up there in the ten top reasons to be human. I leave my home and go sit in a dark room with complete strangers and watch actors do their stuff because I want to be inspired. I’m asking to be involved. I’m volunteering to be led down any old path they choose as long as they don’t let go of my hand. And if I see a show, and it is NOT so very good – I will try to divert you, because I don’t want you to come to the temple when the preaching isn’t up to snuff. I will bar the door, I will swing from rafters, I will yell FIRE just to set your feet on a path that does not lead to disappointment. Do something different with your evening I will say. Save your money for dinner with a friend you haven’t seen in months because you are too frigging busy. Go take a walk with your dog or your child or your significant other. Go to bed early, I will say. Don’t come to the theatre when it is less than it can be. I’m an usher snob, and that’s all there is to it.
